  19. 19. BTEC – The Wolfe Report The Wolfe Review “BTEC National Diplomas are also valuable in the labour market, and a familiar and acknowledged route into higher education, alone or in conjunction with 1 or 2 A levels.” “BTEC level 3 awards differ markedly from A levels in that they all have a more or less specific vocational orientation, but they are also well-recognised by higher education, and widely accepted for entry onto degree courses, especially for courses in similar areas.” Large numbers of students progress directly from vocational courses to higher education. In 2009, 11.4% of the UK domiciled applicants who were accepted for HE entry had a BTEC National Diploma and no A levels, and a further 1.7% a BTEC National plus A levels.
